Review – Monsters Unleashed, Volume 2 (for Pathfinder)

21 August, 2011

Monsters Unleashed, Volume 2, is more monsters rescued from obscurity by the fine people at Purple Duck Games.  If you need some interesting monsters at a bargain price, take a look.

Monsters Unleashed, Vol 2 is a 16-page PDF (12-pages if you remove the OGL pages) for the Pathfinder RPG written by Mark Gedak and Stefen Styrsky and published by Purple Duck Games.  This is part of Purple Duck Games’ Monsters Unleashed Subscription.

The layout is a traditional book design, primarily two-column and easy enough to read.  The monsters follow standard Pathfinder template.  The art is black and white with each creature having its own illustration.  A sheet of creature tokens is included on the last page.

The Challenge Ratings of the monsters unleashed here range from three to 22 (!) mostly good direct combat creatures, including the Fenris Wolf (the CR 22), yes, that Fenris Wolf.  Indeed, the Clay Warriors even come in three varieties.  Each creature descriptions suggests some good adventure hooks for each of the creatures.  All of the creatures each has its own table of what you can find out about it on a successful knowledge check.

Additionally, there is a named and leveled version of one of the monsters, a companion creature for the named monster and a new spell.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

  1. Thanks for the heads up. This looks interesting: the first monster in the preview is the “corpse orgy!”
